    enforce new rules VS New rules are taken effect

    Hello

    Could you tell me if the second sentence is OK and if so, do the two sentences mean the same thing?

    - The government is going to enforce new rules.

    - New rules are going to be taken effect by the government.

    Thanks a lot

    Re: enforce new rules VS New rules are taken effect

    The first is OK.
    The second should be "New rules are going to be put into effect by the government" or "New rules will take effect under the government".

    They don't necessarily mean the same thing. A new law being passed and taking effect doesn't necessarily mean it will be enforced.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
